  • Humanity First Toronto
  • Humanity First Montreal
  • Islamic Relief Montreal
  • MADA Community Center Montreal

“During this fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve always focused on putting Canadians first, and leaned on our purpose of together improving care,” said John Quinn, Director of Corporate Communications, Medline Canada, Corporation. “We’re pleased to help Priority Worldwide in its initiatives to support local NGOs and communities.”

The project is a great example of how the private sector can bring together healthcare supplies, facilities and expertise to reach local community needs.
